DAI LOY GAMBLING HALL
IN CHINESE, DAI LOY MEANS
“BIG WELCOME”

OPENED IN 1916 BY BING LEE, THIS GAMBLING HALL OPERATED UNTIL SACRAMENTO COUNTY OFFICIALS FORCED ITS DOORS TO CLOSE BY 1951,

AN OUTSIDE BENCH WAS SEATING FOR A LOOKOUT WHO COULD PUSH A SECRET BUTTON HIDDEN BELOW TO ALERT DEALERS INSIDE OF ANY APPROACHING POLICE RAIDS.

GAMES WERE PLAYED WITH COMMON HOUSEHOLD ITEMS LIKE BUTTONS AND TEACUPS SO CUSTOMERS WOULD NOT BE ACCUSED OF GAMBLING.

PAI GOW, FAN TAN, HIGH-LOW AND CHINESE LOTTERY WERE THE GAMES OF CHANCE POPULAR HERE. CHINESE LOTTERY WOULD BE LATER BE ADOPTED BY CASINOS AS THE GAME KENO.
